On 26 September Schneider Electric and Electrical Review hosted a webinar advising attendees on how to optimise cooling in the data centre to realise efficiency gains.
Data centre and IT managers are looking for ways to reduce energy consumption and boost performance for the good of the environment, as well as the bottom line. Now, making the right choices to optimise for energy and cost savings just got easier.
The webinar discussed a new flexible aisle containment system called EcoAisle that addresses the critical importance of energy efficiency in the data centre. The EcoAisle is an intelligent thermal containment solution designed to increase cooling system efficiency while protecting critical IT equipment and personnel. This new, flexible aisle containment system, including Active Flow Control (AFC), can optimise airflow and thus improve energy efficiency of the cooling solution. It is adaptable to both hot and cold aisles to tackle a wide range of data centre cooling challenges.
The Active Flow Control (AFC) available in the EcoAisle provides the intelligence to communicate with the cooling system the precise size of cooling airflow to match the load of IT equipment – providing reduction in fan energy over conventional cooling systems.
The webinar recording is now available online, and can be found here.
